Alongside today's release of refreshed MacBook Pros, Apple also quietly reduced the price of build-to-order upgrades for 4 GB RAM modules in its 27-inch iMacs.

In the United States, upgrading from the standard 4 GB configuration of 2 x 2 GB to an 8 GB configuration of 2 x 4 GB modules now carries a $400 price hike, down from a $600 charge previously. Upgrading all the way to the maximum of 16 GB in a 4 x 4GB configuration now costs $1000 compared to the previous $1400 charge.

While the smaller 21.5-inch iMac can support 4 GB RAM modules in its four slots for a total of 16 GB, Apple's build-to-order options only permit customers to upgrade to a total of 8 GB of RAM in a 4 x 2 GB configuration. Consequently, Apple pricing for 21.5-inch iMac configurations remains unchanged.
